Hi! We're Shawn + Adam

We're husband and wife who formed our Love + Water Photography team on Maui in 2014. Since then we've created a series of weddings and sessions from the land + sea, drawing inspiration from the gorgeous colors of Maui sunrises and sunsets.

Romantic Wailea beach sunset portraits

We photographed Diane and Christian’s romantic Wailea beach sunset portraits on a balmy and beautiful Maui afternoon. Want to know something funny? We nearly called this shoot for rain because just a minute down the road it looked like a storm was brewing!

We had a bit of faith in the fact that Maui’s weather is usually favorable in Wailea, and it ended up being one of the most beautiful afternoons we’ve seen in a while!

Looking for more reasons to book a sunset shoot during your Maui vacation?

Here are a few reasons you might opt to do a session at this time of day:

  1. It’s later in the afternoon, meaning that after (or before!) your session you can grab a happy hour drink or dinner, and make a date afternoon of it!
  2. If you’ll be travelling to Wailea from west Maui, there is plenty to see so you can have a day trip and visit some awesome beaches, do a photoshoot then take your time heading back to your accommodaiton!
  3. Sunsets on Maui are truly spectacular, and south Maui has some of the best we’ve ever seen. While it tends to be a bit windier, the trades are a welcome respite from the afternoon heat and make it super enjoyable to work outdoors.
  4. Choosing a sunset session means you have a little bit more time in the day to organize hair and makeup. While many makeup artists will work early for sunrise sessions. At this time, though, there is usually (understandably) a fee attached to an early start. Sunset means you can take your time, and grab dinner with your awesome hair and makeup afterward!
